Speaking of the Conyers family, did you know about his wife?

https://m.metrotimes.com/news-hits/arch ... s-50-today

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monica_Conyers

Sorry for the mobile links.

Anyway, Monica Conyers is the former congressman's wife and a former Detroit City council member who spent over 2 years in federal prison for bribery.

She's also about 36 years younger than her husband. Remind you of anyone? A certain wife of a certain former African dictator?

Gotta add:

The actual lyric (yes it's in a "song") plays to the negative stereotypes much more than ed's pitiful attempt to play to the negative stereotypes.

Needs more n-word, ed. But don't bother. :P

I had forgotten about her, much as I forgot about him until his infractions changed from routine corruption to sexual harassment.

And another one today. This one apparently asked his staffers to carry a baby for him because his wife had infertility problems.

This is quickly turning into the end of "Rollerball."

The James Caan version. The remake was a war crime.

At some point Joe Manchin is going to slowly weave his way through a pile of dead bodies and burning motorcycles to claim the presidency, right?

Well, except for that if anyone really looks into him he's going to get it worse than Moonpie. I know people.

Maybe Kirsten Gillibrand.

A prominent federal appeals court judge. One rank below Supreme Court.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/na ... 9b4955b158

A former clerk for Judge Alex Kozinski said the powerful and well-known jurist, who for many years served as chief judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, called her into his office several times and pulled up pornography on his computer, asking if she thought it was photoshopped or if it aroused her sexually.

Heidi Bond, who clerked for Kozinski from 2006 to 2007, said the porn was not related to any case. One set of images she remembered was of college-age students at a party where “some people were inexplicably naked while everyone else was clothed.” Another was a sort of digital flip book that allowed users to mix and match heads, torsos and legs to create an image of a naked woman.

Bond is one of six women — all former clerks or more junior staffers known as externs in the 9th Circuit — who alleged to The Washington Post in recent weeks that Kozinski, now 67 and still serving as a judge on the court, subjected them to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct or comments. She is one of two former clerks who said Kozinski asked them to view porn in his chambers.

Reagan appointee.

My guess is he was a former prosecutor... lets check...

No... but he apparently ran a porn site by accident and wrote the following in an opinion:

The parties are advised to chill.


Then this:

Sure, firing squads can be messy, but if we are willing to carry out executions, we should not shield ourselves from the reality that we are shedding human blood. If we, as a society, cannot stomach the splatter from an execution carried out by firing squad, then we shouldn't be carrying out executions at all.


Which makes sense... It does look like the guy has for a long time been openly a pervert, which hell, everyone needs a hobby. The way he was sharing his hobby seems to me in the "this guy needs counseling about appropriateness because he's acting like a child sex abuse victim that has never dealt with deep psychological issues" category.

Ryan Lizza fired from the New Yorker. He's the one who got that story on The Mooch, which led to Mooch getting fired 10 days after he was hired.

New Yorker fires Ryan Lizza over alleged 'improper sexual conduct'

The New Yorker magazine announced Monday it had fired Washington correspondent Ryan Lizza following an allegation of sexual misconduct.

“The New Yorker recently learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza. Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.”

In a statement, Lizza said the magazine made “a terrible mistake” and rejected its characterization of his relationship.

"I am dismayed that The New Yorker has decided to characterize a respectful relationship with a woman I dated as somehow inappropriate,” he said. “The New Yorker was unable to cite any company policy that was violated. I am sorry to my friends, workplace colleagues, and loved ones for any embarrassment this episode may cause. I love The New Yorker, my home for the last decade, and I have the highest regard for the people who work there. But this decision, which was made hastily and without a full investigation of the relevant facts, was a terrible mistake."

Douglas Wigdor, an attorney representing the unnamed woman who accused Lizza of misconduct, disputed that characterization.

“Although she desires to remain confidential and requests that her privacy be respected, in no way did Mr. Lizza’s misconduct constitute a ‘respectful relationship’ as he has now tried to characterize it,” read a statement from Wigdor, whose firm is perhaps best known for representing clients alleging sexual harassment and racial discrimination at Fox News. “Our client reported Mr. Lizza’s actions to ensure that he would be held accountable and in the hope that by coming forward she would help other potential victims.”

Lizza also is an adjunct lecturer at Georgetown University, where he taught this past fall. A university spokesperson said that classes had already concluded for the fall semester and that Lizza was not previously scheduled to teach in the spring.

One theory is "they" think they are preparing the moral groundwork for impeaching the pussy grabber.

Is this possible? That this is the conscious purpose of the ideological enterprise not the actual impeachment.
